24 Hours In Negril: Morning
Make every second count. Scuba diving in Negril is an experience not to forget, though early in the morning is not the only time you can go diving, it is best you get it out of the way as soon as possible. There are plenty great dive sites off the beach and cliffs of Negril. Tugboats, shallow planes and beautiful coral reefs and a lot more are awaiting you. You just need to slip under the warm, dark blue Caribbean water, to know what we mean.
Charela Inn Restaurant
You ought to have worked up an appetite from the diving, and it's now breakfast time! You should be spoiled for choice with options for breakfast spots but, we recommend Charela Inn restaurant. Their meals are a blend of French and Jamaican cuisine representing the nationalities of the owners. Alongside the beautiful beach setting, the prices are reasonable, and the food is amazing and prepared with fresh Jamaican products with French flair and a touch of Jamaican spices.
Time for an Excursion! Located off the beaten path at a remote location about 40 minutes out of the town of Negril, this is a popular attraction that remains open until the last person leaves. The Blue Hole Mineral Spring is 100% natural spring water that is said to contain minerals with healing properties. The chilly surface of the chilly water is 25 feet below the land; visitors can either climb down a ladder or take the easy route and just dive in ;). The cavernous opening is completely enclosed with karst limestone, and the sand at the bottom is also said to be good for your skin.
